CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Perfect Game (PG) National Showcase has become the most prestigious showcase event in all of amateur baseball. Since the event’s inception in 2001, 404 former participants have played in the big leagues and 2,642 have been selected in the MLB Draft. Last week 36 of the 37 players selected on the first day of the 2020 MLB Draft, and 149 out of 160 total draft selections, participated in a Perfect Game event.
Aside from the level of talent, what sets the National Showcase apart is that it is held at the beginning of the summer, which gives scouts and college coaches their first concentrated look at the best that class has to offer. This year, the Perfect Game National Showcase is even more important to professional scouts, college recruiters and players due to cancellation of High School Baseball as a result of Covid-19.
Perfect Game (PG) National Showcase will be streamed LIVE on PerfectGame.TV. It also serves as the most important step in the Perfect Game All-American Classic selection process, a nationally televised game that includes the top high school seniors in the country.
